What are my rights as an Infratil Bondholder?

The Bondholders' rights are set out in the Investment Statement. However as there are technicalities and complexities in some of the terminology contained in this description it is a good idea to talk with a professional adviser such as a broker or financial planner. The Bonds are not subordinated, but in certain situations Bondholders may not have priority claims to the assets owned by Infratil.

What are the main characteristics of Wellington Airport?

The airport is on a small site (110 hectares) close to Wellington City.

Air services are mainly domestic (85%) with international links mainly to Australia. There are a small number of services to Samoa and Fiji.

Growth in services and hence use is dependent on airline activity, in particular on the activities of airlines willing to compete with the dominant local carrier.

Aeronautical charges are reset every 5 years via a consultation process between the Airport and its major customers.

The Airport has relatively little land not committed to aeronautical activities, but the development of this property provides a meaningful contribution to the Airport's income.
